Samsung Epic 4G hits markets on August 31st

On August 14, 2010, in Cell Phones, by Salman

Samsung is ready to launch it on a high note. They have been dreaming of their newly designed Epic 4G to settle down in history as an epic but this just won’t be that easy with over a million phones already available in the market. For those who already owe the lower end models of Samsung and love it just because it is a slider; it is time for them to move on.

The Samsung Epic 4G for Sprint packs the screen of the Galaxy S, the 1GHz Hummingbird CPU, the 5MP camera with 720p video and Android 2.1 Eclair with the upgrade to 2.2 Froyo coming soon.

Remember when we featured Swype, one of the newest concepts in typing emails and texts on mobile / portable devices? Now we’ve got something very similar on an iPhone app called WritingPad.

The free productivity app WritingPad quietly and neatly eliminates the problem of stabbing the iPhone’s keyboard in order to type an e-mail or note. Instead of entering letters one by one and waiting for the predictive text to kick in (which I spend alot of time doing!), you use your finger to trace a line from one letter to the next, so it will essentially looks like a squiggle on the keyboard, but it renders as a letter.

You don’t have to concern yourself with avoiding letters you don’t need, or with double letters like o’s or n’s. You don’t even have to worry about manually entering a space between letters because WritingPad will do that, too. In the event your word isn’t in the predictive list, it helpfully lets you add one to the library by entering it letter by letter and then pressing the Space key.

WritingPad struggles with “I’m” and makes it hard to easily access common symbols like the exclamation mark. It also won’t work in landscape mode at this point. The biggest downside to me is that getting the app won’t allow you to use WritingPad as a replacement text input method for your e-mail inbox or SMS which is a shame, but these are minor problems when you consider you gain the convenience of being able to mail notes to your contacts.

Remember WritingPad is free and is available for instant download from the AppStore, if you would like more info, we suggest you visit the ShapeWriter link here

When you see the word: Swype, you will probably think about something like a swipe card, possibly the latest technology in swipe bank cards / debit cards?

I’m afraid it’s not related to that, but something even better! Check out Swype, possibly the next generation of input for text messaging created by the very same people who brought us T9 predictive text messaging, included in most phone models. Swype will soon to be released into the market in future phones.

Swype will let you swipe your finger across the keyboard when writing. No more lifting your fingers, no more pressing the wrong letters. It will even have support for stylus too, so you will be kind of ice-skating on the surface of your handset. There’s predictive text too and there are lots of editing choices.
